Tears and Sunday lunch.




Amie isn't really crying over her lunch, she needs her face washed.
Dinner wasn't that bad after all, let's just say she never left much.
Ames didn't have to fill this in today. The national census was a bit of a let down anyway. Didn't have to put how many cats or dogs. They did however want to know about your religion. It amazed me to know that there are so many Jedi , Dali Lama followers and Witches around in our village. Makes me wonder how many Jedi there are in England today.. One person who went past the cottage said they had written  that they were a Wiki Leak follower this morning.  If you want to know the results of today's census you will have to wait a hundred years to get the information.
There are buds bursting out everywhere, these are on our plum tree. In a few weeks I know one of us will be counting how many plums are on the tree and then blaming me when one goes missing.


Soggibottom is going to be missing from the blogging world for a few days. But only for a few. The week has arrived. Nearly six weeks of living without a working kitchen and an upside down cottage, we are getting ready for our new floor on Wednesday. Can you believe the weather forecast, it's going to rain all day...



Our garden could really do with some rain anyway... See you all later in the week. :-)

Beautiful pansy colours. Him indoors did the census online so it was a lot less complicated as it took you to the ones you needed to answer.

I hope the floor goes down quickly and without any problems. Soggibottom will soon be back to its former glory.

That is funny, love the answers. I hate those, think it is none of their business;) Will be crazy for a few weeks, but so nice when it is done and you can have your kitchen back. Hugs to Ami.

Beautiful blooms you have there. Let's hope the rain holds off for a few days. That looks like a great dinner you have there, Amie.

We bet you are all looking forward to a finished kitchen.

Very creative census answers. I'm too afraid to lie on those things; afraid the government will come and get me for not respecting an official document or something. Enjoy your new flooring. Amie has the cutest face.

Dolores said...

Love those daffodils. I'm glad Amie had a wonderful meal. She looks content. Good luck with the finishing of your kitchen. Hope all goes well.

I completed the census in under 3 minutes and am waiting for the phone call from the census people to say that I filled it all wrong!! LOL!! I've helped catalogue a whole archive of censuses from year 1801 and I think the data from them are just amazing!!!

Awww lovely Amie!!!! Enjoy your yummy noms!!!! Is it really going to rain?!?!?! I was enjoying the lovely sunny weather!!! Nevermind!! Your garden is looking fabulous!!

Good luck with getting your kitchen all sorted!! See you soon! take care

Your pup is so darn cute. Hope we get to see pictures of the new kitchen and the new floor.

Miss Kodee said...

The flowers are beautiful! Pansies... I need to go to the garden center I think I am safe now to plant some. WOW Amie your lunch looks rather fit for a Queen! Oh weepy eyes; spring means Kodee's start to weep too.

I'm hoping the rain clouds hold off over Soggibottom on Wednesday - hope it all goes well.

What question on religion? Uppps... I missed that!
Never mind will it all matter in a Hundred years.

I think I may have confused my Census form with a housewares catalogue; I wondered why the Bettaware man delivered a broomstick ...

What a wonderful meal for such a sweet face! I'm very jealous of the flower pictures. It is still cold and snowy here. Anything in purple makes life beautiful to me.

Oh what a hoot - next time our census rolls around I'm going to have to put Jedi! Ames looks adorable.

I hope the rain won't spoil your new floor, I'm anxious to see it. They were forecasting rain here for Wednesday but changed it just today, thank goodness. Rain=pain and that's the day I get my permanent crown. I think you'll be having the better day, my dear!

When that certain someone starts counting, count along with him OUT LOUD, but different numbers....to confuse him...

Draffin Bears said...

What a darling sweet dog you have and the pansies and your garden must be lovely.
We were meant to have a census in the beginning of March and then when the Christchurch earthquake happened they had to cancel it all.
Thank you for visiting me and I hope that you have a lovely week

Hugs
